Automatic over-the-air configuration of distributed industrial systems

  • Softing Partner Solution

Softing and Portainer simplify the manual system configuration in large-scale industrial projects at remote sites where site-specific configurations are required for setup.

Automating processes to reduce manual effort

Portainer and Softing's innovative solution uses container technology to automatically configure the edgeConnector software over-the-air which significantly reduces manual effort for Softing. 

Challenges and inhibiting factors

  • Many industrial projects are large and span multiple locations and buildings. Accordingly, industrial computers and device controls are also distributed. Site-specific configurations are necessary for each system and application. Manually configuring these systems and applications is time-consuming and impractical for large installations.
  • Lack of reliability 
  • Difficult to scale in a secure manner
